The Goldbergs

"The Totally Awesome Goldbergs Marathon" will air tomorrow (Wednesday, Sept. 3) at 8|7c on ABC. You voted for your favorite 80s moment and now it has been revealed. Your top four moments will air this Wednesday from 8-10pm. It all begins with Barry when him and Adam accidentally discover a "channel between the channels" that appears on television. Ha! Then Adam is obsessed with the movie The Goonies and when Beverly's mother's jewelry goes missing, he bands together Erica, Barry and his friends Emmy Mirksy, Dana Caldwell and Chad Kremp to look for the missing treasure, just like the film. At 9, it's the totally awesome '80s school dance and Adam wants to go. And finally, the classic driver's license episode. Barry receives his first driver's license, Beverly lays out the rules about using the car, including the most important... "Call me when you get there!" Tune in for all four episodes tomorrow night!
